Explanation

Given Information:

Previous balance is $605.42, monthly periodic rate is 0.75%, purchase and cash advances are$156.12 and payments and credits is $200.00. Formula used: Follow the steps to compute the finance charge and new balance by using the unpaid balance method: Step1: The formula of the annual percentage rate is computed by multiplying the annual percentage rate and then the answer is divided with the number of months in a year that is by 12. Annual Percentage Rate=Monthly Periodic Rate×12 Step2: The formula of finance charge is computed by multiplying the balance of the previous month with the monthly periodic rate. Finance Charge=Average daily balance×periodic rate Step3: The formula of the new balance is computed by adding all previous month balance, finance charge, purchases and cash advances and subtract the total of payments and credits. New balance= Previous balance +Finance charge+Purchases and cash advancesPayments and credits Calculation: Consider that previous balance is$605.42, monthly periodic rate is 0.75%, purchase and cash advances are $156.12 and payments and credits is$200.00.

Formula to compute annual percentage rate is,

Annual Percentage Rate=Monthly Periodic Rate×12

Compute annual percentage rate by substituting monthly periodic rate equals to 0
